it would be near impossible to overstate how much i yearn to travel. it is the reason why i watch so many travel documentaries. it causes me to dream in the colors of india and even the isolation of rural north korea. it is satisfying to dream. but i imagine myself a wide-eyed kid again when i finally get to step foot on a different continent. it embarrasses me to say this but i get tears welled up in my eyes when i think of it. like travel is the soulmate i never met.
so anyway, dramatic prelude to just wanting to introduce you to something i stumbled upon the other day. discovering tea is the blog of francois-xavier delmas. he has been travelling to and photographing tea plantations all over the world for the past 25 years. his blog is about his passion for tea as well as his impressions of and appreciation for the different people and places he finds. his photos are stunning. living the dream, i say.
